Cost per Vote Analysis - Expected $1 per vote

Disclaimer: The following numbers were obtained from the "14 days before the election" final reports. The expenditure amounts can potentially be even higher if the campaign committees spent additional money after that 14 day cutoff. After the final reports are submitted to Harrisburg and available on the Department of State website, I will update this article.

  • "Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes ... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. ... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. ... They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
